Week 1 Day 5 - SUMMER BIBLE STUDY

The Celtic approach to God opens up a world in which nothing is too common to be exalted and nothing is so exalted that it cannot be made common.
Esther de Waal
Like the Celtic tradition that began with the common and ordinary, the cup is very ordinary and a part of common events of the day. We use the cup without every noticing its beauty or how it serves our needs for refresment.
Every part of our lives affects our life with God.
God is dwelling with us everywhere
All of life is is the food of our spiritual growth.
Beware of God teaching you through your life today.
Scripture
Luke 12:22-31
Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap...yet God feeds them...Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet even Solomon in all his glory was not clothed as one of these.
One way that life has been my teacher is that I've discovered that I need to place my trust in God first, not people. People come and go in our lives, but God is always there. I've also learned that 'stuff' cannot make me happy.
I'm only happy when I am at peace with God.
The Creator and Sustainer of Life is my teacher. May I be more aware and not brush aside any part of my day without being attentive to the truth that it holds for me.
Today I will do something very ordinary
and learn from it.
'On Ya ' - ma
